Subject: A Pleasant Surprise
I have never been a big Veronica Lake fan but her performance in this impressed me. She had a reputation for being somewhat difficult but, given the constraints and pressures of early television, she delivered an assured and natural performance here. I should also note that the lovely Adrienne Corri later made quite an impression in Kubricks's "A Clockwork Orange".

Subject: Really?
If Miss Lake was terminally ill in 1952, why did she live till 1973?

Subject: Veronica Lake looking 'rough' as she was terminally ill
In this episode of Tales of Tomorrow Miss Lake looks not so glamorous and I think she probably did this for the money. She passed of Hepatitis when she was young. If you are a Veronica Lake fan, you should download the OGG video as that converts the best. The story is a rip off of Amelia Earhart getting lost over the Pacific Ocean, only this time it is a ROCKET instead of a Plane. Veronica sounds so much like Frances Farmer (I have many of her films) that if you did not know better it would be hard to detect the difference in their voices. It is hard to see the 'Peekaboo Girl' with short hair and a bit heavy but if you are a true fan you will want to have this ridiculously written episode!

Season 1, episode 26.
Original air date: 28 March 1952.
Cast: Veronica Lake (Paula), Walter Brooke (Don), Lenore Shanewise (Anna), Mary Stuart McDonald (Deirdre) and Thom Conroy (Rutgers).
British starlet Adrienne Corri, did live commercials for the initial broadcast.
In a mock newspaper made for the broadcast, a picture of German Chancellor Conrad Adenauer is shown.
From IMDB.

Subject: Yes, that Veronica Lake
She is less glamorous here (and in fact, much less attractive) than her glory days in film.

This episode is obviously a ripoff of the Amelia Earhart disappearance.

Subject: Waiting for confirmation of death
There is no science fiction tale here but we do see humanity in a gritty way. The overachieving first wife who let all others wait for her self-indulging behavior. The second wife wanting her husband to finally stop waiting for the departed and truly devote himself to her . The husband, when learning of his first wife's planned trip to the moon in 1952 is happy she crashed and died, not so impressed by the sheer magnetic of travel in outerspace. At least the government was trying for the Moon instead of Mars or Venus. But seriously folks. 1952?
